EASY, QUICK FIBER PACKED MUFFINS

Mornings can be chaotic, muffins don’t have to be. These muffins are perfect for a quick and easy on the go nutritious snack. We used oats as an extra boost of fiber. Oats are rich in a specific type of fiber called beta-glucan. This particular type of fiber is known to help lower levels of “bad” cholesterol and it is great to get things moving in the digestive system.
